Which one of these cutie patooties stole your heart on Disney Channel? Browse our gallery & prepare to be hit with major nostalgia.
It must have been terribly difficult for Joe Jonas to rank former Disney stars Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and Miley Cyrus on Watch What Happens Live on July 23. Why? Because there are so many we love! From the early Mouseketeer days (i.e. Britney Spears) to those classic sitcoms (i.e. Lizzie McGuire), we’re going down memory lane — and we want you to pick your favorite former Disney girl of all time.
Favorite Former Disney Girls
Ashley Tisdale: She played the cute candy counter girl, Maddie Fitzpatrick, on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and then the sassy Sharpay in the High School Musical movies. Today, Ashley is moving forward with more movies — but she’s staying true to her Disney roots by voicing a character on Phineas and Ferb!
Britney Spears: Britney got her start on Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club and now she is the mother of two and currently working on her eighth studio album!
Christina Aguilera: Like Britney, Christina was a member of The Mickey Mouse Club from 1993 to 1995. The songstress is one of the current hosts of The Voice and continues to captivate the world with her amazing vocals.
Demi Lovato: She made all girls green with envy when she co-starred with the Jonas Brothers in the Disney Channel hit Camp Rock. Since her Disney days, Demi has released two albums with hits like “Heart Attack” and “Give Your Heart A Break.” Oh, did we mention she sits beside Simon Cowell as a judge on The X Factor?
Hilary Duff: Lizzie — we mean Hilary — stole our hearts as the lovable-yet-clumsy star of Lizzie McGuire, and now she’s a mom to the adorable Luca!
Lindsay Lohan: She played a sneaky amateur journalist on Disney Channel’s Get A Clue, and although Lindsay’s been in some trouble in the past couple of years, she’s back on the scene with her new movie The Canyons.
Miley Cyrus: She became a world-wide sensation on Hannah Montana from 2006 to 2011, but today, Miley is ditching her former alter ego in favor of a much edgier image. Have you seen the music video for “We Can’t Stop?” We couldn’t believe it was Miley, either!
Raven-Symoné: Raven sassed it up for four years as the loud, peppy teen who could predict the future on That’s So Raven. The actress/singer has since been on Broadway and is currently voicing the role of Iridessa in the Disney Fairies movies.
Selena Gomez: Selena had us all under spell as spunky-wizard Alex on Wizards of Waverly Place. The multi-talented star has just released her first solo album Stars Dance and is embarking on a massive world tour and movie career.
Vanessa Hudgens: Vanessa played sweet-as-could-be Gabriella, the love of Troy Bolton (Zac Efron), in the High School Musical movies. Now, she is moving on from her Disney image with racier roles in Spring Breakers and Machete Kills.
